    August 24, 2013 - Capsule and cork perfect. Popped and poured
    N: lavender, strawberry, and quite surprisingly, no booze or ether.
    P: Filigreed structure, no bitterness, and a plush texture almost making me doubt there wasnt a bit of grenache in there.
    Very well balanced and so delicious. Kudos on making this sing in challenging conditions.
    Plenty of life ahead, give it at least 2 to keep mellowing, methinks.

    April 27, 2013 - ワイン会 (ミエル、横浜市戸部): This wine is the best "Burgundy" I've had for a long long time. Anne and JPT have brought their skills and vision to Minervois... And WOW what magic they have wielded over the Carignane grapes they found here. Started off as an aggressively fruity wine that upon decanting filled the kitchen with beautifully pure and fruity aromas. Made us smile with anticipation.

    3 hrs later served at the tasting:
    Grande! Elevated nose with underlined minerality, round fruit and raw wood.
    In the mouth this is first of all rich, concentrated, structured and mineral in its expression. The full body is well supported by M+ acids and M+ tannins. Elegant harmony. Restrained beauty. Mid-palate is occupied by sunny fruits that still allow for the mineral tastes to intertwine. The finish sports the previously mentioned raw wood, fabulous fruit and bitter almonds.
    Only btl, really looking forward to the magic they have wielded in my 2 btls of 2009.
    QPR for this one beats anything from the "other part" of Burgundy.

    December 16, 2012 - Fruity, floral, youthful. Nice unsophisticated wine. Good for social gatherings.
